The Hunger Games Trilogy – A Lazy Review

by MARIA on March 2, 2012

Ok, so I, like every other person on the planet have read The Hunger Games trilogy.

Sort of.

Here’s my lazy, very short, not much of a review at all, review.

Book One: The Hunger Games

  • Super Fantastic, great premise, likeable characters and whatever else I need to tell you to convey that this thing is one enjoyable read. If you’re near a beach, that much better.
  • You won’t be able to put the thing down.
  • You’ll read it in a day if you ignore your children, housework and the telephone. (Not in that order)
  • I read it in a day.
Book Two: Catching Fire
  • Really good but not super fantastic.
  • A bit of a slow start but picks up and becomes a can’t put it down after about the third chapter.
  • Its slow start allows you to get some dishes done, possibly some laundry. The children might even get fed.
  • I read it in a few days.

Book Three: Mockingjay

  • Not remotely super fantastic.
  • I’ll be honest, I’m still trying to finish this one – it is kind of, really boring compared to the first two.
  • I almost prefer doing laundry than reading this book.
  • Thankfully, I borrowed this from my lovely and understanding girlyfriend, because I’ve had it FOREVER.
  • I plan on finishing Mockingjay at some point. Currently being used as a paperweight.

I will say that despite my sheer boredom re: book three, I am super excited about seeing the movie, which comes out this month, March 23rd!!

Here’s a clip!

What did you think of the books? Will you see the movie?….Can you pick me up? I need a movie date.
